Lecture details

This lecture will be given by Professor Pavarini.


  • Fermi gas and liquid
  • quantum statistics
  • second quantization
  • Green functions
  • linear response theory
  • applications from nuclear or condensed matter physics

Specific learning goal:

Understanding of basic notions of quantum theory of many particles and its their implementation in practical simulations.

General leaning goal:

Ability to explain and discuss the solution to the exercises in class. Using the computer as a problem-solving tool (scripting/plotting)
